Seemingly defying gravity, the structure of Tengy Tower can be built one layer on top of another, with just strings and loose parts. But what's going on here?
We believe that children can understand the concept of ‘TENSEGRITY’ (tensional integrity) in a much simpler way: fun games, easiness of assembly, in multiple combinations.
To create a joyful experience for children, we made a series of thoughtful designs for the strings: adjustable length and easy to lock up.
Besides, we provided different challenges, from beginners to masters level, for different ages of children. By finding balancing points and anchors in the Tower, they can find out the mystery of mechanics. The discovery provides them a path to becoming future engineers and architects.
看似無視重力，The Tengy Tower的結構可以一層一層地建造，只用繩子和部分支架。究竟如何做到呢？
我們相信孩子們可以通過更簡單的方式、有趣的遊戲、易於組裝和多種組合的方法來理解 “ 拉張力” 的概念。
此外，我們為不同年齡的孩子提供了從初學者到大師級別的不同挑戰。 通過在塔中找到平衡點和支撐點，他們可以發現力學的奧秘。 這一發現為他們提供了成為未來工程師和建築師的途徑。
